The Indian Motorcycle first introduced the Chiefs in 1921 to replace the sporty, fast-handling Scouts. With its comfortable ride quality and excellent appearance, it quickly became the backbone of the American motorcycle manufacturer’s lineup.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Chief, India announced the launch of three new bikes, combining the timeless tradition of the same name with the good innovations of the 21st century. For example, the base officer was designed as a modern reinterpretation of the original version, with low drawbars, minimal accessories, and some analog instruments. When it comes to Bobber, the Indian Motorcycle looks back at the blue-collar bicycle of the post-war era, wrapping it with wire wheels and a shredded single seat. The series is completed by the Super Chief (a bagged wagon equipped with a cruiser and front windshield) and is a suitable commemoration of the anniversary. Each model has two different trim levels-standard or dark horse / limited edition-the former is powered by the Thunderstroke 111 engine, and the latter is powered by the Thunderstroke 116. In addition, every dark horse/limited edition bike is equipped with ABS and Indian‘s RIDE COMMAND system, the industry’s first infotainment display that supports Bluetooth.
